300: Rise of an Empire Blu-ray Review | Metal Arcade

Metal Arcade: Jason Bakker writes:

It’s a bit surprising that a sequel to 2007′s very successful sword-and-sandals epic 300 took 7 years to come to fruition. Since it’s been such a long time, one could easily assume that there were production troubles, rewrites, reshoots, etc. – all the things that make one question a film’s quality. So it’s a bit of a shock that 300: Rise of an Empire is a strong popcorn flick. It’s every bit as good as its predecessor, and enriches the tale of King Leonidas’ last stand against the Persian empire by weaving a tale that takes place before, during, and after the Battle of Thermopylae.

I thought it was great for an action movie, in a lot of ways it was better even than the first film. Action was better and I thought the way they weaved the story around the battle of Thermopylae was clever.
